Today is Monday, May 2nd, 2016. What you see in the picture, though, looks straight out of the 1960’s, doesn’t it? We promised we’d talk about this, and now, right here in Episode 49, we will do so.
A month ago today, there was a beautiful example of why the Second Amendment exists and why it’s still needed. Seems some bigots calling themselves the Bureau of Islamic American Relations (BAIR) decided to do an armed protest in front of a mosque, located in a mostly-Black neighborhood. Yep, these protestors were White. And yes, they did have the right to do their protest, as Texas is an open-carry state.
Here’s the URL for the story.
What the residents of this neighborhood did in response was just beautiful. I laughed my can off when I found out about this. Here’s a hint: not a single shot was fired. 🙂
Also, this evening, I finally got a chance to take Dad’s guns to the range. These are the very same guns that protected him for decades; one of ’em’s probably close to my age. I’ll tell you about them and how they were to shoot, from a shooter’s perspective. One’s a Taurus, the other’s a Smith & Wesson. Both are revolvers.
And finally, I’d like to recommend a Facebook page by a fellow Liberal named Anne Weber. She added some important information regarding that whole Journal-News fiasco with the gun-owner-permit holders in New York City. Folks, *this* is why the government shouldn’t know who and where privately-owned firearms are. Anne, thank you for calling this to our attention; I hadn’t been aware of this until you posted it.
